Baltimore Ravens: A long week ahead of Baltimore before Colts game
The Ravens will have to wait until Monday August 20th before they’re game against the Colts. Here’s what to expect from Baltimore in the meantime.
Just when we were beginning to get our fix of Baltimore Ravens football, we have to go back to waiting another grueling week until the team takes the field against the hated Indianapolis Colts. Even in “meaningless” preseason football, it’s a hard pill to swallow. As soon as you’re given something, you don’t want it to leave. Sure, it’s practice for the regular season, but I want my football now!

Until then, we have to focus on what the team has shown us. Thankfully, there’s plenty to talk about.
For starters, the Ravens pass rush looks great so far. Players like Tim Williams and Kamalei Correa have had solid preseasons thus far, great news for the Ravens, who are certainly looking for these two in particular to step they’re game up. So far, so good.
Meanwhile, the quarterbacks have been decently impressive. Joe Flacco looked sharp in his minimal preseason action vs. the Rams. Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin III have also excited fans, with the former showing growth from the Hall of Fame Game to preseason week one.
Guys like Alex Collins and Terrell Suggs have looked great in their limited action, which is awesome to see considering how big a role each will play for 2018. Other role players, such as rookie safety DeShon Elliott, have shined thus far. Elliott is flashing the play-making skills he had during his time at Texas.
The offensive line needs some work, however. No one has stood out in any major way, and this will be more and more of a concern as the season inches closer and closer.
The biggest takeaway from this previous week was how good Breshad Perriman looked against the Rams. Should he continue to show off his play-making ability over the last three weeks of the 2018 preseason, he could make final roster cuts interesting. It seems like a forgone conclusion that Perriman could be doomed to be cut, but stranger things have happened. Nothing would make me happier than to see Perriman prove us all wrong and turn his career around.
Going into the Colts game, there are tons of intriguing story-lines and narratives to follow, and Ebony Bird will be here to cover everything for you. Make sure to keep an eye out on that quarterback battle, as we wait to see if the Ravens will opt to keep three quarterbacks on the roster. Until Monday August 20th, make sure you are keeping up to date with everything Baltimore Ravens here at Ebony Bird!
